Head coach and main contact for all coaching enquiries is Sam Howlett samhowletttennis@yahoo.co.uk 07919 405752. Sam is an LTA level 4 coach.

‘My name is Sam Howlett I am head coach at Hingham Tennis. I have been coaching for just over 20 years full time, I have worked at a variety of venues including performance centres and Mark Warner Hotels in Greece! I started playing at the age of 16 and fell in love with the sport immediately and spent most of my life at the Tennis Club on court for about 12 hours a week. I still enjoy playing matches when I get the chance and playing socially as well! I am also something of a racket nerd, so if you need any advice on rackets please feel free to have a chat!

Away from tennis I enjoy spending time with my family, trying to improve my new hobby I have become ever so slightly obsessed with skateboarding and being involved with the Royal Norfolk Show, where I am a Steward in the Grand Ring.

If you have any queries regarding the coaching programme and getting some lessons please do not hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to help to find you the most appropriate group or coach for your needs’.

'Hi, I'm Jonathan, born and bred in Norfolk. I've just entered the 5th decade of my life and am looking forward to all in store ahead. I started playing tennis at age 5 and enjoyed playing throughout my school and college days. I began coaching in early 2016 and I have loved learning more about the game and passing on some of my knowledge and skills to others. See you on court sometime soon I hope. If you'd prefer a unicycling lesson instead then let me know as I do that too! Maybe a new sport? Unicycling tennis!!'
